Lynne P's City Tips

  • Take metered taxis (e.g. Bluebird) for short distances. For longer journeys, hire a private car and driver, and allow plenty of time for traffic jams.
  • If tax and service is already included in the bill, there is no need to tip unless you feel you received exemplary service.
  • Do not point with your index finger or feet.
  • If using your fingers to eat or when handing something to another person, only use the right hand.
  • Do not touch an Indonesian/Balinese person on the head. This includes children.
  • When entering a temple, please obey the rules.
  • Remember to keep bargaining fun and light-hearted.
  • Speak respectfully. Saving face is hugely important in Indonesian culture, so avoid embarrassing or humiliating a person.

    Lynne P Says:

    A half day 'Couple's Indulgence Package' basically means being pampered with relaxing massages and heavenly flower baths, making a great start to any romantic escapade in Bali. And with glorious views across the lush jungle, there is only the sound of birdsong to interrupt the peace and tranquility at this spa. Plus, you'll follow all this welcome unwinding with a romantic three-course lunch or dinner at the famous Bridges restaurant.

    Sipping a cocktail and watching the glorious sunset from atop a cliff face with uninterrupted views of the Indian Ocean — what could be better? As dusk approaches, the fishing boat lanterns are lit and the sound of the waves breaking below sets the mood for romance here at the Rock Bar.

    Hotel Tugu's 'Aphrodisiac Picnic in Bed' sets the mood for a very romantic night... From your very own antique 4-poster bed on the beach, you can watch the magnificent sunset Bali is known for. And then, after the sun sets and the candles surrounding the bed have been lit, a gourmet dinner is served — including a blindfolded tasting of 4 desserts. Love cannot help but be in the air!

    What better way to start day than with a private sunrise breakfast, served up in the intimate surroundings of your own bale (gazebo) on the beach?! Feel the sea breeze and taste the salt air as you greet the new day together.

    Lynne P Says:

    Situated up north in the land that time forgot and surrounded by untouched forests, Sekumpul Waterfalls are the most spectacular falls in Bali. While it takes a bit of effort to reach these seven wonders of nature, it's well worth it. Once here, take a dip in the pool at the bottom of Lemukih before standing under the largest shower in Bali. You're guaranteed to be transported back in time at this little piece of heaven on earth.

    Tips
    • Because the falls are a distance away from the main southern tourist spots, it's best to stay a night or two here.
    • It is a bit of a hike to reach the falls, and some of it over slippery rocks — bring suitable shoes.
    • Bring plenty of drinking water and perhaps a picnic lunch.
    • Although not compulsory, it is better to hire a local guide.
    • Avoid the weekend and you might be lucky enough to have the falls to yourself.
    • To reach the falls, you need to cross a thigh-deep river — dress accordingly.
    • Bring your swimmers, hat, sunscreen, and insect repellent.
